Well I finally managed to get some sleep after a verrrrry long day of waiting for the news.
May I say once again "CONGRATS ant, you are a very, very lucky man indeed." I know you have the same passion for kiting as I do, so it could not have gone to a more deserving person. (besides myself perhaps ;-)
All is not lost for me however, as I have my ordered custom rainbow SUL comming in on Monday, which I have been waiting 6 to 8 weeks for as well as Ben was very kind to offer me a set of custom handles "to try out" . since I only have one set of handles, the custom ones will come in handly. They would have so gone great with the stunning masterpiece series
I have a lot to be grateful for. 1st.ly, I'm alive (I didn't expect to make 45) I have a new found passion (kiting) kiting has helped me immensly with my health and disability for which I am very grateful. Kiting has had a bigger influence in my life in the past 7 months, than any other activity I have ever participated in.
My only regret is that I didn't discover kiting sooner.
That been said, I am a little dissapointed to report that after months of looking for people to fly with, I am still flying by myself.
I have a number of ads running in local publications, but do you think I can find even one person interested to give it a try?
I have tried changing my ads, using catch phrases, but to no avail.
Here is a link to just 2 of the approx 7 ads I have out there:http://toronto.kijij...67-3ea7ffff62d3http://toronto.kijij...63-9f83ffffd896
Am I doing something wrong??
Or am the only nutcase interested in kites here in Toronto?
I have had no response and/or support from TKF (they seem to shut down in winter?) although Normofthenorth is the only person here, who has contacted m to go flying in "nose bleed" country.(far out of town)
Dissapointed but not discouraged, my intention is to introduce new people to this great sport this summer.
If I can influence just one person to get passionate about kiting as I am, I will be satisfied.
